The great thing about cooking with friends and family is sharing all of our favorite recipes and childhood memories with each other.
Here is Donna's original post-
"My daughter, Anne, converted me to gazpacho. Maybe it was the way her eyes sparkled when she talked about her childhood memories of what she called “liquid salad.” I don’t know, but I do know I think of her every time I eat gazpacho now.
And so, I had this amazing cantaloupe gazpacho for dessert at a restaurant across the street from where I work and I daydreamed about it for days. So light, cool, refreshing. And I pledged then and there to make my own version.
You can use whatever fruit in whatever combo you like – but I liked more peaches/nectarine flavor than plum flavor. And the addition of cucumber is shockingly perfect with the fruit.
With temperatures breaking records everywhere in the West, this is a perfect way to end a meal on a hot summer day!
